Our primary concern in this race is and must be the safety of the competitors. Second only to that is our desire to make the tri a fun, safe event for spectators. We are trying to improve spectator parking and safe spectator access to the main competition area. After wracking our brains we've decided that there is no safe way to provide spectator access from Colrain Rd. down Nash's Mill Rd to the competition area. Therefore, we will be closing access to Nash's Mill Rd. from Colrain Rd. to all pedestrian traffic at 8:00 am.
This meant we needed to find reasonable parking for all spectators on the Leyden Rd. side of Nash's Mill Rd. We believe we've done that by arranging parking at three sites off of Leyden Rd. Each of the locations, below is a short walk to the competition area. We will have police and volunteers at the entry to Nash's Mill Rd. to assist you in crossing or with directions. The map to these areas is shown below and is also a link to a downloadable full page PDF version of the map you can print for your convenience.
Competitor parking will continue to be available as before in lots off of Nash's Mill Rd. Access to the competitor parking lots on Nash's Mill Rd. will close at 7:45 am and exit from the lots will remain closed as long as competitors are on the race course. The following map sows the competitor parking area in more detail. Click the map to download a full size, printable PDF of the area.
We appreciate your understanding and cooperation in keeping this a safe and enjoyable race for all involved.
